Why I Love Travelling
It seems like every millennial is in love with travelling, right? Each of us has a different reason, a different plan, and a different preferred way to travel the globe. I know people who have backpacked through Europe, people who have taken the train from one end of America to the other, and someone who flew to a different state in Australia every day for a week.
Yes, travelling can cost a whole lot of money, travelling can be stressful, scary, and can make a lot of people feel sick. But, if you're smart about it, it doesn't have to cost you a million bucks to get to Ibiza for four days.
There are hundreds of places in this world I'd love to visit, and I mean hundreds. Hundreds of thousands of lakes, cathedrals, castles, natural beauties that can't be appreciated fully through photographs. Luckily I live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Scotland, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to travel to places that will take my breath away.
I love cities, I love colour, I love culture, I love people, I love the experience of having a new experience. My next long-haul adventure will be to Australia, where my father moved 9 years ago, but I still haven't been to visit. Life just gets in the way sometimes, you know?
However, I have been on a whole bunch of short-haul trips over the last few years. Several 6+ hour trains, coach trips, road trips, and every single time I feel the kind of blissful happiness that can only be described as being at peace. Watching the world pass by through the window beside me helps me realise I am a very, very small fish, in a very, very big ocean, and I have so much left to explore!
Travelling helps me discover who I am. Discover new fashions, new cultures, new ways of living.
Travelling is one of the best therapies.
Thank you for reading, I'm sorry this is a bit of a short post! But as always -
I'll see you next time, then.
